The very convenience and flexibility of WiFi introduces unique risks.
All our security testing is fully customised to your environment and deployment model. We have developed a proven methodology to test for wireless security flaws which includes:
Wifi testing, also known as wireless security testing, is a process of assessing the security of a wireless network by identifying vulnerabilities and potential security weaknesses.
Wifi testing is crucial in cybersecurity as wireless networks are often the weakest link in an organisation's security. Hackers can use vulnerabilities in a wireless network to gain access to sensitive information, steal data, or even launch a cyber-attack.
Some common vulnerabilities in wireless networks include weak passwords, outdated firmware, unsecured access points, and unencrypted data transmission.
There are several types of Wifi testing, including wireless penetration testing, wireless vulnerability scanning, wireless packet analysis, and wireless encryption testing.
Wireless penetration testing is a type of testing that involves attempting to exploit vulnerabilities in a wireless network to gain unauthorised access. The goal is to identify and address potential security weaknesses before a real attacker can exploit them.
Wireless vulnerability scanning is the process of scanning a wireless network for known vulnerabilities and weaknesses. It involves using automated tools to identify potential security risks in a wireless network.
Wireless packet analysis is the process of analysing the packets of data that are transmitted over a wireless network. The goal is to identify any potential security issues, such as unauthorised access or data leakage.
Wireless encryption testing is the process of testing the security of a wireless network's encryption. The goal is to identify any weaknesses in the encryption and determine whether an attacker could potentially bypass it.
